  1. EPA proposes new rules for injection wells

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed rule changes to strengthen regulations protecting underground sources of drinking water from underground injection of hazardous wastes. The action is authorized by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Safe Drinking Water Act. The proposed rules were published in Federal Register August 27, 1987.“This proposal assures that hazardous wastes will either be properly treated or placed in an area where they can't contaminate underground sources of drinking water,” said Lawrence J. Jensen, EPA Assistant Administrator for Water. “The regulations would prohibit the migration of untreated hazardous waste out of the injection zone.”

  2. An analysis of the new EPA risk management rule

    SciTech Connect

    Loran, B.; Nand, K.; Male, M.

    1997-08-01

    Due to increasing public concern of risks from handling highly hazardous chemicals at various facilities, a number of state and federal regulatory agencies, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and recently the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), have enacted regulations requiring these facilities to perform accidental risk analysis and develop process safety and risk management programs. The regulatory requirements to be fulfilled are described; the major components involved are a Process Hazard Analysis, a Consequence Analysis, and a Management Program. The performance of these analyses and the development of a management program for 21 facilities operated by the City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, treating drinking water supplies with chlorine, is discussed. The effectiveness of the EPA risk management rule in achieving risk reduction is critically analyzed; it is found that, while the rule increases the worker and public awareness of the inherent risks present, some of the analytical results obtained may have a limited practical application.

  20. Statutory complexity disguises agency capture in Citizens Coal Council v. EPA

    SciTech Connect

    Mullen, R.

    2007-07-01

    In Citizens Coal Council v. EPA, an en banc panel for the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals considered a challenge to EPA regulations promulgated pursuant to the Clean Water Act (CWA). The EPA promulgated the regulations in an attempt to incentivize coal companies to remine once abandoned mine sites. Petitioners, two nonprofit environmental organizations, claimed that the regulations violated the Clean Water Act and Administrative Procedure Act by allowing coal companies to remine without adhering to any enforceable pollution limitations. The EPA countered that more remining would improve water quality at abandoned sites. The Sixth Circuit rejected Petitioners' claims, finding that the EPA's regulations were reasonably consistent with the CWA's goal of restoring the integrity of the nation's waters. In so holding, the court struggled to understand the meaning of the CWA's complex procedural and technical language, and allowed the EPA to justify the rule based on the CWA's broad statement of purpose. Such superficial judicial review sets a dangerous precedent in environmental law, because it exacerbates the risk of agency capture. A captured agency promulgates regulations that benefit-industry, not the environment. Without the judiciary acting as a meaningful check against agency capture, the public loses a valuable tool in the fight against major-industrial polluters like the domestic coal industry. Citizens Coal Council therefore stands as a cautionary tale, a warning sign that the judiciary may be unable to identify agency capture where the regulations at issue are promulgated pursuant to a complex statute like the Clean Water Act.

  1. EPA`s plan for part 75 continuous emissions monitoring rule revisions

    SciTech Connect

    Macedonia, J.; Vollaro, R.; Culligan, K.; Sheppard, M.

    1997-12-31

    As a result of on-going internal and external assessment of the Acid Rain Program monitoring and reporting requirements, EPA, state environmental agencies, and utilities have identified areas of the Part 75 CEM regulations which would benefit from revision or clarification. Many of the suggested revisions will add increased flexibility to the utility industry in implementing and complying with the requirements of Part 75. Other revisions will clarify existing provisions in an effort to make the regulation more understandable. Still other revisions will provide increased quality assurance of the Acid Rain Program CEM data. The panel will present EPA`s current plans for a proposed rulemaking to incorporate the technical revisions to Part 75. The panel will briefly discuss EPA`s proposed revisions to some of the major issues and will respond to questions.

    On February 21, 1991, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rule to regulate air emissions from the burning of hazardous waste in boilers and industrial furnaces (56 FR 7134). Today's notice corrects typographical and editorial errors that appeared in the regulatory text, including corrections to appendices II and III, and adds two appendices, appendix IX and appendix X, to part 266. Appendices IX and X were not ready at the time of publication; therefore, a note was placed in the appropriate location in the rule to inform readers that these appendices were to be published at a later date. Copies of these appendices were, however, made available to the public through the RCRA Docket maintained at EPA and through the National Technical Information Service (NTIS).

    1995-12-31

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing a radiation site cleanup regulation for the protection of the public from radionuclide contamination at sites that are to be cleaned up and released for public use. The regulation will apply to sites under the control of Federal agencies, and to sites licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) or NRC Agreement States. The agency is therefore conducting a comprehensive technical analysis aimed at developing information that will be used to support the rule. This presentation describes the regulation and the approach developed to determine how radiological health impacts and volumes of soil requiring remediation vary as functions of the possible cleanup dose or risk level.

  11. The Clean Air Act`s enforcement ace: An overview of EPA`s credible evidence rule

    SciTech Connect

    Paul, P.J.

    1997-12-31

    The 1990 Clean Air Act ({open_quotes}CAA{close_quotes}) amendments included numerous provisions directing EPA to require owners or operators to conduct enhanced monitoring and to make compliance certifications. These provisions contained in both those Title V (Operating Permits) and Title VII (Enforcement) of those amendments. Section 503(b)(2) of the amended CAA requires at least annual certifications of compliance with permit requirements and prompt reporting of any deviations from such requirements. Section 114(a)(3) of the CAA requires EPA to promulgate rules on enhanced monitoring and compliance certifications. On October 23, 1993, EPA proposed its {open_quotes}enhanced monitoring{close_quotes} rule. The enhanced monitoring proposal also included the Conceptual approach of using {open_quotes}presumptively credible evidence{close_quotes} in enforcement actions. Further, this proposal also would have allowed the use of {open_quotes}credible evidence,{close_quotes} other than reference or compliance test data to establish noncompliance in an enforcement action. In approximately three weeks, EPA is scheduled to republish as a final rule, the credible evidence provisions of the original enhanced monitoring rule with apparently minor revisions.

  2. Inside story on the legal challenge to EPA`s municipal waste combustor rule: The mouse that roared, Round 1

    SciTech Connect

    Jenkins, L.S.

    1997-12-01

    An article in the Deseret News, one of two general circulation newspapers in Salt Lake City, Utah, dated December 13, 1996, reported that {open_quotes}David{close_quotes} took on {open_quotes}Goliath{close_quotes} and won. The article referred to the Davis County Solid Waste Management and Energy Recovery Special Service District`s (the {open_quotes}District{close_quotes}) victory on its challenge to the EPA`s municipal waste combustor rules. On December 6, 1996, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that the EPA violated the plain language of Section 129 of the Clean Air Act, when it wrote size categories for municipal waste combustors ({open_quotes}MWCs{close_quotes}) based on aggregate plant capacity, rather than unit capacity. The District argued that Congress divided the universe of MWC units into two categories: those with unit capacities above 250 tons per day, and those with unit capacities equal to or less than 250 tons per day. The EPA, however, had set the dividing line at 248 tons per day aggregate plant capacity in its municipal waste combustor rule. The Court said this was wrong. The Deseret News report certainly echoed the feelings of the District. Those of you familiar with the EPA, the process of judicial review of administrative rule making, and the Biblical story of David and Goliath, however, will quickly see that this is not the best metaphor to describe what happened. When David slew Goliath, that was the end of Goliath. He didn`t get back up. Of course, that will not happen to the EPA in the Davis County case. Like an 800-pound gorilla, it will always get back up after being challenged by a mouse. This paper tells the story of the challenge to the MWC rule from the District`s perspective. The District has not been popular with either the EPA or many industry players. But, the District was faced with a real problem that, given the District`s location and the local economy, forced its hand in this case.

  14. Washington State's federal adequacy determination strategy for compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's state implementation rule

    SciTech Connect

    Alb, J.W. )

    1994-03-01

    On October 9, 1991, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published in the Federal Register a rule relating to municipal solid waste landfill units, 40 CFR 258, also known as the State and Tribal Implementation Rule, or STIR. This set into motion federal mandates established under Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended, which requires state adoption and implementation of a solid waste permit program or other system of prior approval, with approval of the state program by the EPA required by October 9, 1993. Washington State's solid waste permit program is, in comparison with other states' programs, unique, since the state of Washington does not issue permits. This task is and has remained the responsibility of local jurisdiction health departments since Washington State promulgated its first solid waste laws in 1969. The challenge of the state is to develop a strategy for adequacy determination'' that meets federal criteria yet addresses the historical traditions of Washington State. This paper outlines the strategy and process followed and issues examined by the state of Washington's Department of Ecology as it has prepared its application for determination of adequacy with the EPA to meet the federal requirements established under RCRA Subtitle D.

    Schere, K.L.; Fabrick, A.J.

    1985-09-01

    The U.S. EPA Regional Oxidant Model (ROM) and NEROS data base are described. The model incorporates a comprehensive description of the physical and chemical processes thought to be important to tropospheric O3 production on 1000-km scales. The data base employed for the first application of the ROM was collected during the summers of 1979 and 1980 in the Northeast U.S. It contains meteorological and air-quality data from regular monitoring networks and from enhanced networks or special field-project measurements during that period. The evaluation procedure that will be used to determine the ROM performance on this data base is outlined. A number of episodes will be simulated from the period July 23 through August 16, 1980, for which performance statistics will be developed. The evaluation of any given day within an episode will proceed in two distinct stages. The first stage will focus on model performance for an individual model realization, irrespective of all other realizations. Model realizations for a given day are functions of the possible flow fields that existed for the day. The second stage will attempt to evaluate model performance using the full probabilistic abilities of the ROM that consider all realizations concurrently. The focus of the evaluation will be on O3. The exact pathway through the evaluation study will be determined by the resources available at the time.

    1985-08-01

    The testimony contains comments by NIOSH on the proposed rule of the Environmental Protection Agency concerning asbestos (1332214) abatement programs. NIOSH proposes a slight change in the wording of the definition of asbestos to make it more mineralogically correct. NIOSH requests that the definition of asbestos fibers be extended to include both a length and a diameter measurement. The position of NIOSH regarding the choice of respirators for protection against asbestos fibers is stressed. Use of single use or dust and mist respirators for protection against asbestos is discussed. NIOSH encourages the use of more specific language on the hazard warning for asbestos, particularly to avoid creating and breathing the dust and that breathing the dust may cause asbestosis, lung cancer or mesothelioma. NIOSH recommends that annual x-rays not be permitted as its researchers do not believe that the diagnostic values of annual chest roentgenograms outweigh the risks attendant to x-ray exposure. NIOSH recommendations for medical surveillance are included in the testimony.

    Ferrer, Imma; Zweigenbaum, Jerry A; Thurman, E Michael

    2010-09-03

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Method 1694 for the determination of pharmaceuticals in water recently brought a new challenge for treatment utilities, where pharmaceuticals have been reported in the drinking water of 41-million Americans. This proposed methodology, designed to address this important issue, consists of solid-phase extraction (SPE) followed by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC/MS-MS) using triple quadrupole. Under the guidelines of Method 1694, a multi-residue method was developed, validated, and applied to wastewater, surface water and drinking water samples for the analysis of 70 pharmaceuticals. Four distinct chromatographic gradients and LC conditions were used according to the polarity and extraction of the different pharmaceuticals. Positive and negative ion electrospray were used with two MRM transitions (a quantifier and a qualifier ion for each compound), which adds extra confirmation not included in the original Method 1694. Finally, we verify, for the first time, EPA Method 1694 on water samples collected in several locations in Colorado, where positive identifications for several pharmaceuticals were found. This study is a valuable indicator of the potential of LC/MS-MS for routine quantitative multi-residue analysis of pharmaceuticals in drinking water and wastewater samples and will make monitoring studies much easier to develop for water utilities across the US, who are currently seeking guidance on analytical methods for pharmaceuticals in their water supplies.

  17. Universal waste rule: Final rule issued. Environmental Guidance Regulatory Bulletin

    SciTech Connect

    1995-08-14

    On February 11, 1993, EPA proposed to streamline the management requirements for certain hazardous wastes that were generated in large quantities by a variety of generators (i.e., residential, small businesses, industries, etc.). EPA`s intention was to facilitate the environmentally sound collection and disposal of these types of wastes. In this proposed rule, EPA termed these types of hazardous wastes ``universal wastes`` and developed a management system which was less stringent than the existing Subtitle C regulations. EPA proposed that the following three types of hazardous wastes be managed as universal wastes: batteries, certain pesticides, and thermostats. Because EPA believed that the authority to propose the promulgation of the universal waste rule was not significantly linked to HSWA provisions, the Agency proposed the promulgation of the universal waste rule under pre-HSWA authority. On May 11, 1995, at FR 25492, EPA promulgated a pre-HSWA rule that streamlined hazardous waste management regulations for universal wastes.

    2004-02-01

    Haloacetic acids (HAAs), which are formed during the disinfection of drinking waters with chlorine, are regulated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Stage 1 Disinfectant/Disinfection Byproducts (D/DBP) Rule. Recently, three studies have been reported indicating that low concentrations of HAAs can also be formed during disinfection with chloramines. Methods currently approved for compliance monitoring under the Stage 1 Rule arrest the chlorine-mediated formation of HAAs by adding ammonium chloride, which forms chloramines. Studies were undertaken using an in-process water that favored the formation of HAAs with moderate total organic carbon concentration and high levels of chlorine to investigate the potential formation of HAAs under sample storage conditions. The ammonium chloride-quenched sample did form a small amount of HAAs, but total formation over a period equal to the 14-day sample storage time was less than 2 microg/l, whereas the unquenched samples increased 41 microg/l during the same period. Pour plate studies indicated that chlorinated drinking waters quenched with ammonium chloride are protected from microbial growth, which is an important additional advantage to this preservation scheme. The presence of a combined chlorine residual should prevent microbial degradation of HAAs in samples. These studies support the preservation protocols and the sample storage times promulgated for compliance monitoring under the Stage 1 D/DBP Rule.

  13. Review of the scientific basis for EPA's (Environmental Protection Agency's) school asbestos hazard program, with recommendations to state health officials

    SciTech Connect

    Not Available

    1984-10-01

    The basis for the school asbestos hazard program of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reviewed. Risk of disease following asbestos exposure is discussed. For industrial exposures, lung cancer risks cluster between 1 and 10 percent per fiber year per milliliter. For mesothelioma, estimates range from 0.01 to 0.06 percent. For nonoccupational exposure, lung cancer risks range from 2 to 40 per million exposed persons. Mesothelioma risks range from 2 to 100 per million. The indirect quantitative risk assessment of EPA for asbestos associated cancers due to exposures at schools in early life is discussed. As of May, 1982, approximately 8,600 schools contain friable asbestos and approximately 2 to 6 million students and 100,000 to 300,000 teachers, administrators, and other staff are potentially exposed to airborne asbestos in these schools.

  17. EPA`s proposed renewable oxygenate requirement (ROR): Pros and cons

    SciTech Connect

    Czeskleba, H.M.

    1995-12-31

    In December 1993, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its final rule that sets for the details for requirements to sell reformulated gasoline (RFG) in certain ozone non-attainment areas. At the same time, EPA also issued a proposed rule to require that 30% of the oxygen required in RFG be based on a renewable oxygenate. Renewables include ethanol and its ether derivatives such as ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE). The RFG rule is a final rule, while the Renewable Oxygenate Requirement (ROR) rule is a proposed rule yet to be finalized and subject to revision. Included in this paper are brief reviews of Ashland petroleum Company`s ethanol usage, oxygenated fuel and reformulated gasoline blending economics, and some comments on the EPA proposed renewable oxygenate requirement.

  14. The use and acceptance of Other Scientifically Relevant Information (OSRI) in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program.

    PubMed

    Bishop, Patricia L; Willett, Catherine E

    2014-02-01

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) currently relies on an initial screening battery (Tier 1) consisting of five in vitro and six in vivo assays to evaluate a chemical's potential to interact with the endocrine system. Chemical companies may request test waivers based on Other Scientifically Relevant Information (OSRI) that is functionally equivalent to data gathered in the screening battery or that provides information on a potential endocrine effect. Respondents for 47 of the first 67 chemicals evaluated in the EDSP submitted OSRI in lieu of some or all Tier 1 tests, seeking 412 waivers, of which EPA granted only 93. For 20 of the 47 chemicals, EPA denied all OSRI and required the entire Tier 1 battery. Often, the OSRI accepted was either identical to data generated by the Tier 1 assay or indicated a positive result. Although identified as potential sources of OSRI in EPA guidance, Part 158 guideline studies for pesticide registration were seldom accepted by EPA. The 93 waivers reduced animal use by at least 3325 animals. We estimate 27,731 animals were used in the actual Tier 1 tests, with additional animals being used in preparation for testing. Even with EPA's shift toward applying 21st-century toxicology tools to screening of endocrine disruptors in the future, acceptance of OSRI will remain a primary means for avoiding duplicative testing and reducing use of animals in the EDSP. Therefore, it is essential that EPA develop a consistent and transparent basis for accepting OSRI.

  16. Overview of the US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) electrostatic particulate research and development program

    SciTech Connect

    Plaks, N.

    1984-11-01

    The U.S. EPA's particulate research and development program, divided between an in-house laboratory effort and extramural work at various research institutes, makes use of electrostatics in most of the work associated with stack or ducted emissions. Research facilities which offer a large degree of flexibility and capability are described. Significant work currently underway, making use of electrostatics, includes: (1) smooth large-diameter discharge electrodes (9-10 mm), that have been evaluated in 1/3- and 10-MW pilot units; (2) the multistage electrostatic precipitator (ESP), consisting of several two-stage ESPs in series, each using cold-pipe prechargers and collectors with large diameter electrodes; (3) the E-SOX process, combining the multistage ESP with a spray dryer in an existing ESP, for simultaneous SO2 and fly ash removal (including injections of soda ash and lime slurry droplets); and (4) electrostatically augmented fabric filtration with fly ash (including spray drying by-product material).

  19. An examination of the Environmental Protection Agency risk assessment principles and practices: a brief commentary on section 4.1.3 of the EPA March 2004 Staff Paper.

    PubMed

    Mundt, K A

    2006-01-01

    The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently issued a Staff Paper that articulates current risk assessment practices. In section 4.1.3, EPA states, "... effects that appear to be adaptive, non-adverse, or beneficial may not be mentioned." This statement may be perceived as precluding risk assessments based on non-default risk models, including the hormetic--or biphasic--dose-response model. This commentary examines several potential interpretations of this statement and the anticipated impact of ignoring hormesis, if present, in light of necessary conservatism for protecting human and environmental health, and the potential for employing alternative risk assessment approaches.

    Bryant, C.

    1993-11-01

    A proposed rule signed on Aug. 31, 1993, by US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Carol M. Browner, would amend the land disposal restrictions (LDR) under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The rule, published in the Federal Register on Sept. 14, 1993, is commonly referred to as the Phase II LDR Rule. The proposal addresses treatment standards for newly identified organic toxicity characteristic (TC) wastes and proposes universal treatment standards for listed waste streams. Comments on the proposed rule are due to EPA by Nov. 15, 1993. Other major issues addressed in this proposal include alternative treatment standards for soils contaminated with listed hazardous wastes; treatment standards for newly listed coke by-product and chlorotoluene production wastes; new requirements for high total organic carbon ignitable wastes and TC pesticide wastes; and modifications to the hazardous waste recycling regulations.

    1989-01-01

    The Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action (UMTRA) Project involves stabilizing 24 inactive uranium mill tailings piles in 10 states. Remedial work must meet standards established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Remedial action must be designed and constructed to prevent dispersion of the tailings and other contaminated materials, and must prevent the inadvertent use of the tailings by man. This report is prepared primarily for distribution to parties involved in the UMTRA Project, including the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and states and tribes. It is intended to record the work done by the DOE since publication of the proposed EPA groundwater protection standards, and to show how the DOE has attempted to respond and react in a positive way to the new requirements that result from the proposed standards. This report discusses the groundwater compliance strategies now being defined and implemented by the DOE, and details the changes in disposal cell designs that result from studies to evaluate ways to facilitate compliance with the proposed EPA groundwater protection standards. This report also serves to record the technical advances, planning, and progress made on the UMTRA Project since the appearance of the proposed EPA groundwater protection standards. The report serves to establish, document, and disseminate technical approaches and engineering and groundwater information to people who may be interested or involved in similar or related projects. 24 refs., 27 figs., 8 tabs.

    In 1997 then-US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Carol Browner adopted new National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5). Browner recognized that 'there is uncertainty in the characterization of health effects attributable to exposure to ambient PM.' As a result, President Clinton promised to review the scientific basis for those standards prior to their implementation. Recently, before EPA has even promulgated rules concerning implementation of those standards, the agency proposed to revise those standards to make them significantly more stringent. Are the proposed revisions to the standards appropriate? The author argues. 41 refs.

    Computational toxicology combines data from high-throughput test methods, chemical structure analyses and other biological domains (e.g., genes, proteins, cells, tissues) with the goals of predicting and understanding the underlying mechanistic causes of chemical toxicity and for predicting toxicity of new chemicals and products. A key feature of such approaches is their reliance on knowledge extracted from large collections of data and data sets in computable formats. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a large data resource called ACToR (Aggregated Computational Toxicology Resource) to support these data-intensive efforts. ACToR comprises four main repositories: core ACToR (chemical identifiers and structures, and summary data on hazard, exposure, use, and other domains), ToxRefDB (Toxicity Reference Database, a compilation of detailed in vivo toxicity data from guideline studies), ExpoCastDB (detailed human exposure data from observational studies of selected chemicals), and ToxCastDB (data from high-throughput screening programs, including links to underlying biological information related to genes and pathways). The EPA DSSTox (Distributed Structure-Searchable Toxicity) program provides expert-reviewed chemical structures and associated information for these and other high-interest public inventories. Overall, the ACToR system contains information on about 400,000 chemicals from 1100 different sources. The entire system is built using open source tools and is freely available to download. This review describes the organization of the data repository and provides selected examples of use cases.

    An easy-to-use indoor-air-quality (IAQ) model is described. It is multi-compartmented and based on a well-mixed mixing model. Sources and sinks are allowed in each compartment. A menu-driven fill-in-the-form user interface controls program flow and is used to obtain data from the user. On-screen graphical output is provided. The model estimates the effects of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), air cleaning, room-to-room air movement, and natural ventilation on pollutant concentrations. Experiments conducted in the EPA test house using moth crystal cakes for model verification are described. The agreement between small chamber emission factors, model predictions, and test house data is very good. Predicted weight loss of the moth crystal cakes was within 5% of the measured weight loss. Predicted room concentrations of p-dichlorobenzene are within 20% of the measured values. Future directions for model development and experimental studies are discussed.

The material was equipment (steel piping, transfer pumps valves) which had been used in industrial wastewater treatment facility to transfer listed F006 wastewater treatment plating line sludges to a RCRA storage tank complex. When the equipment needed to be replaced/repaired, it was concluded that the resulting debris would have to be managed as a mixed waste, due to the fact that the solid waste contained'' the listed hazardous waste.

    Showstack, Randy

    Under a new rule proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in February, 240 million Americans are about to learn a lot more than they already know about the sources of their water and its purity or contamination levels. The EPA rule would, for the first time, provide Americans with an annual Consumer Confidence Report about the safety of their water, beginning in October 1999. The reports could help consumers make informed choices about drinking water as well as become involved in safeguarding and improving their water supplies, according to the EPA. The reports are a key public information provision of the amended Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996, and would be delivered to consumers by mail or in their local newspapers.

  19. Contributions by Wave Propagation Laboratory to EPA's (Environmental Protection Agency's) complex-terrain model-development project. Technical memo

    SciTech Connect

    Eberhard, W.L.

    1986-12-01

    The Wave Propagation Laboratory (WPL) participated in the Environmental Protection Agency's Complex Terrain Model Development Project, whose objective is development of numerical air-quality models valid in complex terrain. Particular attention was given to impaction of elevated plumes on high terrain during stable (nocturnal) conditions. WPL operated a plume-mapping lidar, acoustic sounders (some with Doppler capability), sonic anemometers, a tethered sonde, and crosswind optical anemometers. Measurements were usually displayed in real time for experimental guidance and later processed with quality assurance for quantitative analysis. A synopsis of data acquisition and archiving is given for each experiment, including a review of the results of scientific analyses already completed.

    Computational toxicology combines data from high-throughput test methods, chemical structure analyses and other biological domains (e.g., genes, proteins, cells, tissues) with the goals of predicting and understanding the underlying mechanistic causes of chemical toxicity and for predicting toxicity of new chemicals and products. A key feature of such approaches is their reliance on knowledge extracted from large collections of data and data sets in computable formats. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a large data resource called ACToR (Aggregated Computational Toxicology Resource) to support these data-intensive efforts. ACToR comprises four main repositories: core ACToR (chemical identifiers and structures, and summary data on hazard, exposure, use, and other domains), ToxRefDB (Toxicity Reference Database, a compilation of detailed in vivo toxicity data from guideline studies), ExpoCastDB (detailed human exposure data from observational studies of selected chemicals), and ToxCastDB (data from high-throughput screening programs, including links to underlying biological information related to genes and pathways). The EPA DSSTox (Distributed Structure-Searchable Toxicity) program provides expert-reviewed chemical structures and associated information for these and other high-interest public inventories. Overall, the ACToR system contains information on about 400,000 chemicals from 1100 different sources. The entire system is built using open source tools and is freely available to download. This review describes the organization of the data repository and provides selected examples of use cases. PMID:22408426

    EPA has announced final revisions to the National Contingency Plan (NCP), which lays the ground rules for how EPA and other federal agencies, states and private parties clean up hazardous wastes sites and discharges of oil. The new NCP serves to strengthen key areas of the Superfound implementation process as recommended in EPA Administrator William Reily's so called 90-day Management Review in June 1989. The management review emphasized technologies development, public involvement, and realistic goals, such as making sites safer and addressing worst sites first. The National Priorities List (NPL) is EPA's list of those sites posing the greatest danger or potential danger to human health and the environment. There are currently 1219 sites on the NPL. Other issues addressed in the new NCP include informing the public of the types of remedies that EPA has selected, or anticipates selecting; strengthening state involvement by authorizing states to conduct investigations, analyses and remedy selections at federal Superfund sites; and measuring success of site cleanups.

    The Ozone Transport Commission`s (OTC) Nitrogen Oxides (NO{sub x}) Budget Program will implement the emissions reduction goal of the 1994 Memorandum of Understanding between its twelve member states and the District of Columbia. The program will achieve its significant NO{sub x} reductions from electric utilities and industrial boilers using a {open_quotes}cap-and-trade{close_quotes} approach modeled after the US Environmental Protection Agency`s sulfur dioxide emissions trading under the Acid Rain Program. The similarity of the two programs has led to the development of an important partnership between the OTC states and EPA`s Acid Rain Division, Over the past two years, Acid Rain Program staff have shared their technical expertise and assisted extensively in the development of the program`s rules. Leveraging the investment EPA made in the systems used to run the Acid Rain Program, the OTC states have asked the Acid Rain Division to administer the data systems for them, and together are working to expand its existing Emissions Tracking System and to modify a clone of the sulfur dioxide Allowance Tracking System, to fulfill the unique requirements of the NO{sub x} Budget Program. This partnership is an important example of the new type of cooperation and sharing of expertise and resources that should develop between EPA and states as they launch multi-state programs to address regional pollution problems that defy a single-state solution.

  15. Evaluation of the WIPP Project`s compliance with the EPA radiation protection standards for disposal of transuranic waste

    SciTech Connect

    Neill, R.H.; Chaturvedi, L.; Rucker, D.F.; Silva, M.K.; Walker, B.A.; Channell, J.K.; Clemo, T.M. |

    1998-03-01

    The US Environmental Protection Agency`s (EPA) proposed rule to certify that the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) meets compliance with the long-term radiation protection standards for geologic repositories (40CFR191 Subparts B and C), is one of the most significant milestones to date for the WIPP project in particular, and for the nuclear waste issue in general. The Environmental Evaluation Group (EEG) has provided an independent technical oversight for the WIPP project since 1978, and is responsible for many improvements in the location, design, and testing of various aspects of the project, including participation in the development of the EPA standards since the early 1980s. The EEG reviewed the development of documentation for assessing the WIPP`s compliance by the Sandia National Laboratories following the 1985 promulgation by EPA, and provided many written and verbal comments on various aspects of this effort, culminating in the overall review of the 1992 performance assessment. For the US Department of Energy`s (DOE) compliance certification application (CCA), the EEG provided detailed comments on the draft CCA in March, 1996, and additional comments through unpublished letters in 1997 (included as Appendices 8.1 and 8.2 in this report). Since the October 30, 1997, publication of the EPA`s proposed rule to certify WIPP, the EEG gave presentations on important issues to the EPA on December 10, 1997, and sent a December 31, 1997 letter with attachments to clarify those issues (Appendix 8.3). The EEG has raised a number of questions that may have an impact on compliance. In spite of the best efforts by the EEG, the EPA reaction to reviews and suggestions has been slow and apparently driven by legal considerations. This report discusses in detail the questions that have been raised about containment requirements. Also discussed are assurance requirements, groundwater protection, individual protection, and an evaluation of EPA`s responses to EEG`s comments.

    The 1986 U.S. EPA document Air Quality Criteria for Lead (EPA-600/8-83/028 aF-dF) evaluated in detail the latest scientific information concerning sources, routes, and levels of lead (Pb) exposure and associated health effects and potential risks. An Addendum (1986) to that document focuses on additional, newer studies concerning the effects of lead on cardiovascular function and on early physical and neurobehavioral development. The present Supplement to the above materials evaluates further still newer information emerging in the published literature concerning (1) lead effects on blood pressure and other cardiovascular endpoints and (2) the effects of lead exposure during pregnancy or early postnatally on birth outcomes and/or the neonatal physical and neuropsychological development of affected children. The evaluations contained in the Supplement and the 1986 Criteria Document and Addendum are to serve as scientific inputs to decisionmaking with regard to review and revision, as appropriate, of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Lead.

    Showstack, Randy

    Since its establishment in 1970, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has primarily served as a regulatory agency with a significant science component. However, the agency's scientific practices and performance at times have been criticized by the U.S. General Accounting Office, the National Academies of Science (NAS), Congress, and EPA's own science advisory board, as well as in a number of lawsuits.New legislation introduced by Rep. Vernon Ehlers (R-Mich.), chair of the House of Representatives' Science Subcommittee on Environment, Technology, and Standards, includes measures meant to improve the agency's science component. The legislation, H.R. 64, would require the president to appoint an EPA deputy administrator for science and technology This deputy administrator, who would rank higher than existing assistant administrators (AAs), would be responsible for the overall scientific and technical foundation of the agency's decisions, including ensuring that the agency's scientific endeavors use the best possible peer review and research planning practices.

  20. Defining the scope of lender liability after Kelley v. EPA: Who will have safe harbor?

    SciTech Connect

    1995-08-01

    In 1980, Congress enacted CERCLA in order to clean up toxic waste sites and identify broad classes of people who would be financially responsible for the clean-up efforts. One of these broad classes of responsible parties includes owners or operators of hazardous waste sites. This category created enormous potential for liability risk for lenders who hold title to contaminated property as collateral. Congress created a {open_quotes}safe harbor{close_quotes} exemption from liability within the definition of owners and operators in order to protect lenders who held title merely as protection of a security interest. Conflicting interpretations have caused a great deal of confusion for lending institutions. In response to fears of unlimited liability expressed by lending institutions and in consideration of the federal government`s increasing role as a secured creditor, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a regulation in 1992 that attempted to define clearly the scope of a lender`s liability under CERCLA. This rule provided the lending community with a precise standard by which to guide their actions in order to avoid incurring liability. In Kelley v. EPA, the EPA`s regulation that attempted to clarify issues of lender liability under CERCLA was struck down by the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The court held that Congress had not granted the EPA authority to promulgate regulations that would define the scope of lender liability in private party litigation. It further determined that federal courts should evaluate claims in private cost recovery actions independent of the EPA`s {open_quotes}institutional view{close_quotes}. This note postulates that the Kelley decision to invalidate the rule once again exposes lenders to unlimited liability under CERCLA by leaving them to make decisions based on an ambiguous statutory provision that has been interpreted both broadly and narrowly in the past.

  12. Understanding the EPA guidance on major source determinations for military installations

    SciTech Connect

    Ling, A.D.

    1997-12-31

    In August 1996, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the first ever Clean Air Act (CAA) guidance directed specifically at military facilities. The Guidance, titled Major Source Determinations for Military Installations under the Air Toxics, New Source Review and Title V Operating Permit Programs of the Clean Air Act, was negotiated by an EPA/DoD workgroup that included field and headquarters EPA and DoD representatives, and was led by the Navy. This paper describes the development and contents of the guidance and the significant legal and policy issues raised. By statute and rule, all sources under common control on contiguous or adjacent property and belonging to the same two digit Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Code must be aggregated when determining if the source is a major source. DoD requested that EPA develop the guidance because of a move by EPA to impose a fenceline-to-fenceline interpretation of what constitutes a major source for purposes of the three programs identified above. Such an interpretation could and did result in more stringent regulation of industrial sources on military installations than of similar industrial plants. The guidance establishes EPA`s allowable interpretation of two of the three key elements of the major source definition. First, the guidance specifies that common control occurs at the military service level; therefore, sources belonging to the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, the National Guard or a Defense Agency that are located on the same installation could each be treated separately. Second, the guidance allows the military to assign SIC codes to functional industrial groupings in a manner similar to the private sector. Past practice grouped all national defense activities under the same SIC code.

  17. The impact of egocentric vs. allocentric agency attributions on the neural bases of reasoning about social rules.

    PubMed

    Canessa, Nicola; Pantaleo, Giuseppe; Crespi, Chiara; Gorini, Alessandra; Cappa, Stefano F

    2014-09-18

    We used the "standard" and "switched" social contract versions of the Wason Selection-task to investigate the neural bases of human reasoning about social rules. Both these versions typically elicit the deontically correct answer, i.e. the proper identification of the violations of a conditional obligation. Only in the standard version of the task, however, this response corresponds to the logically correct one. We took advantage of this differential adherence to logical vs. deontical accuracy to test the different predictions of logic rule-based vs. visuospatial accounts of inferential abilities in 14 participants who solved the standard and switched versions of the Selection-task during functional-Magnetic-Resonance-Imaging. Both versions activated the well known left fronto-parietal network of deductive reasoning. The standard version additionally recruited the medial parietal and right inferior parietal cortex, previously associated with mental imagery and with the adoption of egocentric vs. allocentric spatial reference frames. These results suggest that visuospatial processes encoding one's own subjective experience in social interactions may support and shape the interpretation of deductive arguments and/or the resulting inferences, thus contributing to elicit content effects in human reasoning.

  1. NNEPS (National Network for Environmental Policy Studies) final report: EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) Region 1 wellhead-protection efforts. Technical report (Final)

    SciTech Connect

    Stern, P.L.

    1988-08-01

    This report discusses three wellhead-protection projects undertaken in Region One: the Cape Cod Aquifer Management Plan (CCAMP); Region One's Priority Ground Water Resource-Based Mapping Project: the Nashua Regional Planning Commission Pilot Area; and the Chesprocott Groundwater Protection Project. All three projects are aimed at preventing contamination of community wells. CCAMP serves as a prototype for Region One's wellhead protection efforts and may be broken down into four main phases: delineating the critical groundwater recharge area of each community well (the Wellhead Protection Area), identifying and assessing the risk of existing and future sources of contaminants within the Wellhead Protection Area (WHPA), examining the adequacy of existing management strategies to prevent groundwater contamination, and implementing local management controls based on the results of the first steps. All three of the projects develop and refine management ideas and methodologies on the prevention of groundwater contamination. Many of these techniques may be used by local and regional agencies concerned with protecting their groundwater resources.

    Koutsandreas, J. D.

    1975-01-01

    The proposed ERTS-DCS system is designed to allow EPA the capability to evaluate, through demonstrable hardware, the effectiveness of automated data collection techniques. The total effectiveness of any system is dependent upon many factors which include equipment cost, installation, maintainability, logistic support, growth potential, flexibility and failure rate. This can best be accomplished by installing the system at an operational environmental control agency (CAMP station) to insure that valid data is being obtained and processed. Consequently, it is imperative that the equipment interface must not compromise the validity of the sensor data nor should the experimental system effect the present operations of the CAMP station. Since both the system which is presently in use and the automatic system would be in operation in parallel, conformation and comparison are readily obtained.

    Over the next few months, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be finalizing its proposal to revise the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for fine and coarse particulate matter (PM). Since issuing the proposal in December 2005, the agency has sought comments from all interested parties, and will base its final decision on the record that was established through the comment period, which ended on April 17. In this issue articles present perspectives from some of the many non-EPA stakeholders who have played an important role in this review process. This article summarizes EPA's proposal, as well as the extensive process EPA goes through when setting air quality standards. 1 fig., 2 tabs.
